Shotcut for Windows is a great free movie making software that has support across different types of computer platforms such as Windows, Linux and Mac so it has a lot of versatility. It is backed by Black Magic design support, an Australian company that edits Emmy winning TV such as Game of Thrones, for input and configuring. It is very easy for beginners to use to start making videos from day one due to the simple interface. It is easy to incorporate different clips and has many different functions so that videos can come together rather quickly. For example, if you are editing a video together and you are using different audio clips and as your editing you don't want to keep hearing one part of the audio you can mute that one part of it.  On top of this, many different video formats are compatible with the Shotcut so that adding different formats is easier than other software. It is also easy to add many different high quality video effects such as fade in and blurring part of the frame. The video runs very smooth in Shotcut because it is set to be frame accurate and it also supports all the way to video in 4K.

For many people working with video is not easy. However with the new Windows program called "Shortcut", sold by Softradar, this program makes it very very simple to do any type of editing with a variety of video formatted files (used across Windows, Linux and Mac) and also includes over 300 special effects you can add to your videos with video templates. It is so simple to use due its interface that a beginner could start make their own movie from Day One. So if you love working with digital video, this is one software program for your Windows PC you have to check out. If this program is backed by Black Magic design support, an Australian company who edits Emmy winning TV shows such as Game of Thrones, for input and configuring how can you go wrong?

This new video editing software sounds like it simplifies the entire video creating process. It would be a very convenient software for anyone just beginning to learn how to do this. However it did not mention the cost, if any. If it is expensive many beginners might not be able to take advantage of it.
